Start Button Not "Starting"

Windoze 10 build 10586 now occasionally decides that the start button does not want to start. Right click menu works fine but the normal start menu just plain does not come up. It works after a re-start and I have yet to determine what causes it to have a hissy fit.

Another (possibly) unrelated issue is that the windoze 7 games that I have loaded (freecell being the only one I play) tends to start switching apps at a great rate of knots like I am pressing and holding <Alt><Tab>. If I click on another window, or the start button, it stops for short time and I can continue playing until next time.

This has all occurred since I have performed a complete re-load to cure my recent networking issues.

My first thought was "Key stuck on the keyboard".

Does the Win key bring up the start menu?

Have you tried running ProcMon to see if it can give you any clues as to what's going on?

I've come across it before . In my case it threw the hissy because
it hadn't completely booted up before I tried to access something ,
not that it's slow to boot though , just me being impatient
